Wide format raster compression applied to a printing environment
Abstract:Digital compression allows to minimize the amount of data in a raster image. Its principle is to take advantage of the redundancy in its content. Typically it aims to decrease storage requirements and transfer times. In the wide format document industry, raster data are most of the time processed in an uncompressed format, in order to apply processing, color management or halftoning before printing. We anticipate the evolution of the data-flow size, by investigating the adequacy of compression, for wide format document management. Based on the image management and transformation features of the JPEG2000 compression standard, we propose to use a compressed format as the new data-flow representation.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
